A religious man and the son of a minister, in his later life Millikan argued strongly for a complementary relationship between Christian faith and science .     He dealt with this in his Terry Lectures at Yale in 1926–27, published as Evolution in Science and Religion .  A more controversial belief of his was eugenics . This led to his association with the Human Betterment Foundation and his praising of San Marino, California , for being "the westernmost outpost of Nordic civilization . . [with] a population which is twice as Anglo-Saxon as that existing in New York, Chicago, or any of the great cities of this country."
